For obvious reasons I'd like to find a place to live near my job which will be right by the NBC studios. What area would you recommend for a 29 year old female. I'm looking for rommates. I know Burbank should be a safe area because it's the burbs, but how is North Hollywood or Studio City?

From the three areas what are the pros and cons if you're familiar with all?

Studio City is still good, South of Ventura is even better.

Try Toluca Lake~

Good Luck!

Having lived in North Hollywood and Studio City, knowing your budget will help. Studio City is a more expensive neighborhood. The southern part of NoHo AKA Toluca Lake is also a more affluent area. Both are nice areas.

I am currently in escrow on a house in mid-town NoHo, near the Burbank border. While I'd like to live in Toluca Lake, it is quite expensive. If you're looking at moving into an apartment, you should be able to afford some reasonably priced apartments in any of the 3 areas with NoHo offering the most affordable prices in general. If you try looking in the NoHo Arts district, you may find more expensive/modern apartments. NoHo is quite a large area. Definitely stay south of Victory Blvd.

There are actually some really good affordable apartments in the Burbank area itself right now. I'm suprised the prices are still what they are because earlier this summer, LA's apartment prices have skyrocketed. If you check Apartmentguide.com, they list alot of Burbank apartments that are offering pretty affordable places for your commute to your job. You don't have to go to Ventura or Studio City. You should be able to find a pretty nice studio for under $1200. And a 1-bedroom under $1400 Which is affordable for LA. Good luck!

Try the Oakwood apartments in Toluca Hills, they are right across the street from Warner studios.

I live on W. Toluca lake ave. and it is Burbank but on the line of Burbank and Toluca lake. The end of my street is warner brothers. The whole street is apartment buildings with 4 units in each and all are 2 bed 1 bath many with families and roommates. I see signs all the time of availability and the average is about 1400 for one of these.

I'd choose Studio City. As another poster noted, south of Ventura better if you can afford it.

Burbank and much of Glendale are great.
Close in NOHO and Studio City, Universal City, Toluca Lake, Sherman Oaks are all good. South of Magnolia might be a good boundary but not hard and fast.
If you can rent or buy in the Hollywood Hills, or the Hills facing the Valley that's super duper.
